However been to in laws and brother In law has start doing a bit if vinyl wrapping , which got me thinking. So I'm going to attempt to wrap the fairing. It may come out all wrong but I'm goi to give it a go watch this space for photos and fairing getting launched over the fence.


Sounds very interesting look forward to the photos. If I hear loud shouting from the Sheffield direction I won't ask any questions, haha

pretty much blade
+ ear muffs for the kids as the profanity's i used were not good for his little ears

the more i worked with the material the better i got at it

it looks ok i could have got it better but i asked the wife to help when she got home and she decided it was more fun burning my hand with the hair dryer so i called it a day.

I know it's a old thread but since I am new i have been browsing the site and come across this.

Looks really nice do you still have the rsv?

Have you tried to put a quickshifter on it dyno jet one not a stand alone one.

I been having problems with mine apparently they can be a pain but I don't know if that's just the gen 1s as the gen 2s have different connectors electrics etc.

Great looking track tool there mate (y)
